Setting goals & working towards them using the SMART goal approach

The dictionary defines a goal as “the object of a person’s ambition or efforts; an aim or desired result.” Considering this definition, it becomes apparent that goals form a vital role in our lives when it comes to our progress, drive and purpose.

Having goals gives us something substantial to focus on. It gives our lives greater purpose and meaning which is something that is strongly desired by most human beings.

To have a goal is to have a challenge and to have a challenge brings excitement and joy. It also helps us channel our energy towards something positive and advantageous.

Regaining Trust in a Relationship after Drug Addiction

Regaining trust in a relationship after drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment demands work and effort from both sides.

With hard work from both you and your partner it is possible to repair your relationship. However, it means patience on your part, and an open mind and zero resentment from your loved one.

Why a Residential Rehabilitation Centre can Optimise your Recovery

A study dating back to the 1970’s explains how changing an addict’s environment can help them overcome addiction and avoid relapsing.

The study, which was heavily contested in its time, is now regarded as significant to current concepts about how we can change behaviours and how addiction can be cured.

Escapism an appealing “substitute”, but is it really the wisest choice?

Often, we overlook the true impact of our emotions. We forget that our emotions are the things that drive us, whether it’s happiness, sadness, fear or anger.

We overlook the significance of our emotions, refusing to recognise why we felt that way or how that negative experience and its attached feeling has impacted our lives.

Because of this, we are never able to fully seek closure on a negative experience, allowing that experience to ripple out, inevitably affecting our lives for years to come.

A First Year Addiction Recovery Checklist

During the first year of your addiction recovery, there may come times when you feel you aren’t achieving the goals you had planned for yourself.

The first year can be challenging and it may feel as if you want to give up. However, during these times it is important to remember how far you have come and just how much better your life is free from substance abuse.

Step Away Rehabilitation Centre has developed a list of a few goals that we feel you can use as reminders and to help you stay on track of your recovery in the days and months to come.

Choosing a South African rehab that cares

Choosing a good rehab centre in South Africa may appear easier than it is.

It’s not as simple as you’re an addict, here is a rehab, there is your recovery.

There are a few more aspects that need to be considered if you want to achieve your end goal, a life of sobriety.

Codependency - Don't let it tear your family apart

Addiction is the addict’s disease; co-dependency is the family’s disorder.

In the last article we discussed enabling an addict and briefly touched on the overlapping likelihood of an addict’s family’s needing co-dependency recovery.

In this article we will be exploring co-dependency and detachment with love.

Realistic Addiction Recovery Goals
